Painted rocks being hidden at New Mexico national park.

It needs to stop, rangers say By Mark Price, The National Park Service is investigating an odd mystery at Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico, involving artistically painted rocks found tucked into canyon niches — sort of like Easter eggs.

An odd mystery has been discovered at Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico — and it involves artistically painted rocks hidden like Easter eggs in canyon niches. Photos shared on Facebook show the artist may have invested hours, if not days, making the rocks decorative.

But the National Park Service wants it stopped. “Rangers found these painted rocks while hiking in Slaughter Canyon,” the park wrote on Facebook. “Although leaving painted rocks behind for strangers to discover may seem like a fun activity, it is not appropriate in national parks,” the park wrote. “Please minimize your impacts on your public lands by not leaving trash or other items behind.”

DAWSG SAYS: IT APPEARS TO ME THE ROCK ARE IN GOOD TASTE AND NOT GARBAGE. MAYBE THEY DO NOT LIKE THEM BECAUSE IT WAS NOT THEIR IDEA.
